Curious to know what other bands folks grab on a continual basis as with the GD/JGB.

For me:
Neil
Bobby D/The Band - love those collaborations/era
Richard Thompson
Wilco
drvin n cryin/kevn kinney [playing the umpteenth straight year with warren at the x-mas jam]
Whiskeytown/Ryan Adams
... americana seems to be a bit of problem (and via the british isles from which it partially stems)

Have been contemplating the same thing after reading Rob’s post and trying to come up with a “proportion of my average daily music listening time is given over to the GD.”
At work the radio usually rules, but a couple of us slip in a cd here and there. I usually act as dj only on the weekends with a smaller crew – then we listen to the dead, or others from my list below. If I was to make a stab at a proportion, I’d guess around 50% GD at home and in the car. Some nights (and days off) you guys here steer me into more concentrated GD listening – and thanks for that!

A few other bands that grab me these days and the Archive has helped me explore, in no particular order and with lots of old classic favorites left out: Assembly of Dust, Steve Kimock, Umphrey’s McGee, Jim Weider, and I’d be amiss not to mention my friends - a local “groove-grass” trio called Jatoba. So many more…van, the band, the radiators, bob marley, dylan, dawg, coltrane, miles, satchmo….where does it end?

Courtesy of iTunes handy little 'last played' feature I can see exactly what the 9 hours of music I listened to today consisted of. It included:

Amon Duul II
Bob Dylan
Bruce Cockburn
Can
Daniel Lanois
Faust
Florence and the Machine
The Good, The Bad and the Queen
Lucy Kaplanski
Neil Young
R.E.M.
Robert Johnson
Steve Hunter
Three Beers 'til Dubuque
Van Morrison
Warren Zevon

sundry others and about half an hour of some band called the Grateful something or other. A pretty typical day's listening really.

I guess there's just too much to listen to to grab hold of anything much on a regular basis. Whether or not this is a good thing is something I have yet to decide.

At least once a week I will usually dip into Dylan, Steve Kimock, Derek Trucks, Gov't Mule, Jimmy Herring, Allman Brothers, Yonder Mountain String Band, Phish, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Emmylou Harris, some Chicago Blues, bluegrass and fingerpicking acoustic guitar.

BD

I grabbed 02/24/2005 DC and 08/28 Dublin from Wilco's site
http://www.owlandbear.com/wilco-archive/

Any other recommendations from that list. Thanks.

Lots of Bobby D lately, even more since his Kitchener show a couple of Saturdays ago. With Sexton back in the band, I can't wait for the boots from this tour.

Otherwise Mayall, Marley, Knopfler and Young plus a great French-Canadian band called Harmonium mixed in 50-50 with GD and related material. This goes on all day rudely interrupted by phone calls and client-meetings.

It really depends on how much I've drank and what I'm listening too each morning.
